4 teams in a division,16 teams in the NFC all by itself,16 teams in the AFC all by itself,and 32 teams all together.
Well, there are four division leaders from the AFC, and four leaders from the NFC. Then there are four wild cards that play the number 3 and four division leaders. The number 1 and 2 division leaders get a bye. Two teams from the AFC and two teams from the NFC gain a 1st round bye
Besides the teams that are in them none. Many people say the AFC has better teams.
The top teams in each of the eight divisions will automatically make the playoffs. Then there are two wildcard teams that make the playoffs from each conference (NFC & AFC). These two wildcard teams in each conference make the playoffs based off of who has the best record other than the four that have already won their division. If two teams have the same record, then they look at the head to head games, and then their point differential. Recap: 8 teams who win their conferences, 4 in each conference (NFC, AFC), automatically make it (AFC West, AFC East, AFC North, AFC South, NFC West, NFC East, NFC North, NFC South) 4 teams, 2 in each conference (NFC, AFC), who have the best records other than the teams in the conference who have already won their division.
The 49ers will face play all teams in their division twice, plus all the teams from one NFC division and an AFC division.
